National Lottery Scratch Cards Best Odds

If you’re going to play National Lottery scratchcards, you want to make sure you maximise your chances of winning right?!

One of the big things that players overlook are the actual odds of winning a prize.

If there’s one thing you take from this article, generally speaking; the more expensive the scratchcard, the better the odds.

This means that are you more likely to find better odds on a £5 scratchcard than a £1 scratchcard.

But to make life easier for your eager players, we have compiled a table of all the scratchcards with the odds of winning a prize.

However, it doesn’t always come down to the odds.

The jackpot prize – as well as the number available – play a big part.

For example, in the above table, the Fruity £500s scratchcard has loads of jackpots available – but the £500 jackpot is a lot smaller than some of the million pound prizes available on other £5 scratchcards.

Another example is the Win £50 scratchcard. At the beginning of this article, we actually said that £1 scratchcards generally have the worst odds. But not in this case.

The reduced jackpot prize has actually improved the overall odds, which make it one of the best £1 scratchcards to play.

Best odds or best jackpot?

You may notice that some of the best odds are with the smaller jackpot games.

If you want to win big, then maybe searching by scratchcard odds is the wrong way to approach National Lottery scratchcards.
